A Severe Case Completely Healed

One Wednesday evening a few weeks ago I was making all possible speed toward a prompt attendance at our usual meeting. I had been frying fish and had a quantity of grease in a skillet as I was cooking them as one would doughnuts. My dinner was served and I thought to remove the smoking fat. So I took hold of the handle of the skillet, went down to the cellar, opened the furnace door, and threw the grease in on a hot bed of coals. The flames burst forth and from my waist up I was a mass of fire. Instinctively I placed my hands over my eyes and hair, then stepped up into the coal bin, took my aproan and beat out the rest of the fire. I called out but no one heard me. I then walked up stairs. My daughter came out in the kitchen and said, "Mamma, what is the matter?" I said. "I guess I am burned."

My daughter wished to go for some healer, but I said, "No; I do not need any one. If you wish to please mamma you will go down and eat your dinner, do up the work, and then come back. I want to be alone." There came no doubt, no fear, nothing but an absolute reliance on God. I read a little in our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Then I went to work. This accident occurred about half past six in the evening; by half past nine the same evening all suffering was destroyed and I was asleep.
